Off-topic Discussions and You
Just posting this to clarify the recent closure of discussion threads in the Off-Topic forum. I know it's upset some people that I've been closing some of these threads, which is why I feel I should address here why those threads are being closed.
- It falls under the "Do not discuss" topics (ex; politics, religion, sex etc...)
- We receive multiple reports from members who are offended by the topic being discussed. OR how it is being discussed.
- Members are taking the topic too personally. By this, I mean they're beginning to insult and personally attack other members involved in the discussion.
It's very simple. You are allowed to discuss ANYTHING you want, providing it doesn't violate any of the rules listed above or any rules outlined in our Community Rules and Guidelines. If people are unable to maturely discuss the topic and end up taking it out of hand, it will be closed. I'm not preventing "freedom of speech", I'm closing the thread because one of the reasons listed above. Slow down, think before you type and ask yourself "would this offend someone?" if you are unsure. Do not post it.
As usual any questions or complaints can be sent to me via PM.
